Made it!

So I have finished my class! I got through it kicking and screaming the whole way, but I made it! And I think I may even get a passing grade! I'm hoping for a B at least - but I am being held in suspense until grades are posted. I am so ready for a break! All of us who made it through one more semester, stand up and applaud for yourselves! Woo hoo!! This was, without a doubt, the toughest class I've taken in a very long time, and holy cow am I happy it's over!

Now, time to regroup, and get through the holidays and New Year. I usually tend to try to stick my head in the sand and hope it blows over without causing too much damage. I can't stand New Years Eve. You have a big build up and then ppffzzt. Let down. Or a huge fight. So in self-defense I have learned to expect nothing so I'm not disappointed. I haven't enjoyed a New Years Eve since I morphed into an adult. So if any of you are planning on being home alone on New Years, keep your computers warmed up, I may just decide to post a scintillating commentary on how I'm spending the final moments of 2008 - or I may just go to bed at 9 and forget the whole thing - stay tuned! Same time, same station! Blog - out!

Almost over!

Well, this semester is nearly done, thanks goodness! It has been a rough one for me, probably the roughest since I started taking classes at UIS. I've never been less than excited about a class before and I've never wished so hard to be done with a class before. But after this one, I think I need a nice long break! I did not enjoy this class at all, except for some of the readings. The next class will be an effort to earn credit for prior learning, and that one I am definitely looking forward to! I will get to concentrate on me, a subject I truly do enjoy! So that should be good, and then the summer semester will hit and I can regroup. I just need to take a good look at my transcript and see where I'm really at, and where I need to be, and how to get there from here. In the summer, I'll sort it all out and decide if I can keep going on this path or if I need to find another one. I hope I can stay on this one, I don't want to be a quitter, and I've already come halfway. Well, we'll see. In the meantime, Christmas is coming, the presents are all wrapped and ready to go, the tree is up and looking pretty and the new year is just around the corner! All's well with the world! Well, not really, but it seemed to fit in there. I must go, Sunday evening is so depressing, Monday morning is only a few hours away. Bleah.
